Donning an African-inspired, custom vibrant blue and canary yellow strapless gown from House of Herrera, the 33-year-old actress said it was "wonderful to be back at #TIFF!" to promote her latest film which sees her starring as the mother of a 12-year-old chess prodigy, Phiona Mutesi, from the slums of Uganda.

Pairing her dress, which featured floral detailing in the bodice and fabric from Kenya, with a matching blue silk head wrap, the Academy Award-winning starlet donned a whooping $624,000 worth of Tiffany & Co. jewels, including rings and earrings adorned with tanzanites, diamonds and sapphires.

SLAY!

As for her beauty look, Lupita kept things simple with a glowing complexion, eyeliner and a soft red lip.


Later that evening, the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" beauty was honoured at the star-studded Vanity Fair and Tiffany & Co. party in downtown Toronto where she was toasted for her "legendary style."

For the event, Lupita wore a stunning Mary Katrantzou jumpsuit with futuristic details and an intricate neckline that she matched with a silk green head wrap. Once again, she donned Tiffany & Co. jewels.
